Thank you It is indeed a fine fiddle.
That KC Strings 5 String Violin sounds amazing!
Fiddlershop apparently doesn't carry the Fiddlerman Realist 5 String anymore, but there is Fiddlerman's "Master" 5 String - just a name change?
I would LOVE to recommend my Glasser AEX 5 String, but don't think any of my videos reflect it's true sound - I probably should break down & purchase an external mic to record with. Fiddlershop carries 3 Glasser 5 String Violins, but I didn't see any reviews of them, just the 4 String versions.
Here's a Gibbles' review of the Glasser AEX 5 String VIOLA, from Fiddlershop - same strings/larger body!
...seriously considering a 5 String Viola!
